A Coventry community group's work is put in the spotlight

A community group which featured in a BBC documentary in the 1970s has helped 40,000 people in 40 years.

Valley House was created in 1977 in Coventry, when local residents asked the city council for a house to support people who had run into personal problems.

The programme Open Door highlighted the work that was being done by the community of Stoke Heath.

The actual house, 84 Valley Road, may have been demolished but Valley House lives on with 70 staff helping 4,000 people across Coventry.
